Strange as my dads new Platinum with max tow, non max payload (3.55 gears) looks to have the same diff as my truck (2007 Harley-Davidson with a 9.75). They look very similar and have 12 bolts where...

Looks like they are using the 8.8 "heavy" rear axle more then the usual 9.75. Wonder what you have to order to get a 9.75? Ecoboost? Max trailer tow? Max payload? I'm sure the upgraded 8.8 would be...

Looks like it will be made the first week of March and delivered near the end of March. Wow quite the delay on them. 3 months to build and almost 4 from the time you order to the time too get it.

Looks like its a order priority 19... Hope that doesn't delay things too much. They are a bigger dealer and seem to have quite a few trucks on hand compared to other dealers. They do a lot of fleet...

After a 3rd trip to the dealer for this same issue they have decided to replace the DPF sensor. One of the trips they reset the codes and reprogrammed the PCM... It barely made it around the block...

Check engine light has come back on today. May drive it for a while in hopes that the dealer can find a hard fault when I take it in next week. Hopefully they will do something this time. At least...

Having the oil changed right now back to the 5w-40. It's -16 today - so out of the recommended range. Sure it will run fine with the 15w. But a 5w is a better fit in my opinion. No check engine...

Update - the cel has not come back on yet. But fuel economy is down and the exhaust smells really "skunky". Especially on a cold start. If I start it in the garage with the door open the garage will...

Dealer woes - CEL and oil change

So my f-550 had a check engine light on so we booked it in at the dealer. They booked it for an oil change (since the last one was 8-9 months ago) even though it only had 1000 km (600 miles) on the...

The van has been good so far with the V10! No complaints. I haven't had a good drive in it yet due to the roads (slushy) and this is a company vehicle that someone else drives. I either drive my...

I think I will appreciate the 400lbs less over the front axle, the extra 70HP, and extra gearing (4.56 vs 4.10 or 4.30 - I can't remember what the old one has). I really don't think that I will miss...

We use the f550 for towing a telehandler. It's pretty low mileage too. But when it gets used it is really used. Towing a minimum of 30k lbs.
